January at the Book Place


New year, and a fresh start on your reading. How about filling your long, dark nights or rainy afternoons with a BIG book? We’ve gathered a bunch in our front window that might entice you to step out there and tackle one of them. They’re all 500 pages plus! We’ve gathered books from all over the store and many categories, including Literature, History, Biography, and more.

If it’s Science Fiction or Fantasy you’re into, or wanting to try, we’ve got our Sci-Fi/Fantasy section reduced to half price. There are many classics, or maybe a new series to take on. Come by and check it out.

 The Book Place is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am - 3pm.
Donations accepted Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
ONLY 10am-3pm.

Book Donation Info

We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. We are in particular need of the non-Fiction categories: History, Biography, Military, Science, etc. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation, as many categories have limits (such as, nothing published more than 5 years ago). We accept donations on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am-3pm, at our large rollup door behind the store. Pull into the parking lot and look for us, where we’ll quickly screen your donation and provide a receipt if you like. If you are donating more than 2-3 bags/boxes, please phone ahead (415-209-0212) to check if we have room to take your donation, or if you have questions about anything you wish to donate. Thanks in advance!
